Can I make these dinners ahead of time?
You can make many of these recipes (with the exception of sandwiches and fresh salads) up to one day ahead of time and keep them refrigerated until you're ready to reheat and serve.
Another way to save time is to prepare the ingredients ahead of time so the cooking process is shorter.

What an incredible list of vegetarian meals. They all look so good. I think I'll start with the Mediterranean pizza and then go from there.
Lovely collection of vegetarian recipes! I'm not a vegetarian but would like to cut a lot on my meat consumption so this is a good place to get ideas! Plus a lot of nice Indian flavors is a plus. Thanks for sharing!
